The project marks the first time that CiRA has worked with a French luxury brand.

“For this new research project started between Dior Science at LVMH Recherche and the Woltjen laboratory at CiRA, the effects of age on mitochondrial status, skin regeneration and differentiation will be investigated, with the hope of contributing to major therapeutic discoveries in the skin and cutaneous rejuvenation,” wrote CiRA on its website.

Under the direction of CiRA director Shinya Yamanaka, who won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2012, CiRA is a leading centre for induced pluripotent stem cell research. CiRA researches on medical applications to develop new treatments and has worked on Parkinson's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

LVMH Recherche is the LVMH Group’s research and innovation division and carries out all research for Dior’s makeup and fragrance products.
